Just another site that's giving you hard to find music

A Place To Find Some Rarer Tunes (Mod, PowerPop, Punk, Ska) ripped from my vinyl collection. If it sounds good I'll post it. The idea being that now you know about them, you can seek them out! If anyone is unhappy about any of these posts please contact me & I will take them off.

Le Fracàs - Quelle Joie D'etre Riche (1983)

A1 - Quelle Joie D'être Riche
A2 - De Coeur En Coeur
B1 - Quelque Chose En Moi
B2 - L'heure De La Revanche

As the posts have been a little Anglo-centric lately I thought it time to leave our fair Isles and pop over the Channel to France - (Orange, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur to be precise.)

Here's some great Mod Pop from

Marcel Eychenne (Voc, Guitar)
B. Eychenne (Voc, Bass)
P. Barbero (Drums)

Unfortunately I can't tell you much about the band. From what I've been able to peice together from the scant info on the net, this incarnation seem to have been around from 1981 - 84.
There was an earlier formation (1978 - 81) Marc Damien  (Guitar), Alain Fabien (Guitar)‏,  Marcel Eychenne (Guitar), Denis Eyraus (Bass), Pierre Viaud (Drums)
who had a track‏ (Nous En Avons Marre - also in the D/L) on the Various Artists LP  125 grammes de 33 1/3 tours & later the track was included on the Killed by Death 007 compilation.

If anyone knows any better please leave a comment
